Disk Protection Command Line RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I know this has been asked and answered before, but the thread has fallen by the wayside.


    What is the plan for adding the ability to enable WDP via the command line?  Without it, this product is a step backwards for us and completely useless.  It would be impossible to expect people to manually enable WDP on the number of machines we are looking to deploy this to.


    Switching WDP to a file based system as opposed to the partition system was a giant leap forward, but by not having a command line tool to use it makes it pointless.

  • since the enabling\disabling the WDP entails intalling or removing the driver(VCFFltr.sys), it is not easy to implement currently.We have forwarded the request to our product team. For any new progress on this, we will inform it here as soon as possible. Thanks for your understanding.

  • Hi Sammy


    Is there any way of writing a vb script to run after sysprep to turn on windows disk protection?  We have hundreds of computers at our University so to manually turn on Windows disk protection would not be feasible.


    many thanks

  • Hi Katrina,


    Unfortunately, in the current version of SteadyState, there is no WMI interface to turn on WDP. Thus, we have to turn on it manually. After that, we can switch WDP modes with scripts.  The turn on WDP with script feature will  be added in the new version (2.5) which will be released next year. Thank you for your patience.


    Best Regards,
